The Mystikoi pauses in its adventures around the sea to give us a sparkling smile. ==AMY’S NOTES== This started as an effort to try and make the Mystikoi’s wings translucent, which is not easy to do in Poser. And it’s even harder to tell if it’s working when there isn’t much in the background to make it clear that the material is translucent and not just semi-transparent. The wings ended up looking a little bit like glass, but I suppose that’s OK for a mystical fairy fish :-) Rendered in May 2022 using Firefly in Poser Pro 11.3 for Mac at 2800 × 3600 pixels. View full size on my blog. ==CREDITS== SCENE: Background from Aquatica by Sveva. CHARACTER: Mystikoi by Ryverthorn.

Have this figure but could never make it look this good! Fantastic!!!

As you know, I do like fiddling with materials sometimes, although it can get tedious to change something, do a test render, change something, do another test render, repeat ad nauseam! The base textures I used came with the fish, so the tweaking I did was with various material nodes. If you'd like the material set, I can send it to you!

Beautiful little creature,wonderful image!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

perpetualrevision 3:50PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks so much for the comment! It's certainly a rather interesting fish :-)

I do have it too but only used it one time and I did resize it. You made him looks beautiful. Good job.

perpetualrevision 3:51PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks so much for the comment! I think I remember the scene you used the fish in (was it a lady flying her pet fish?) I think it was that scene that inspired me to go looking for the figure, b/c what a cool figure it is! I love these kinds of fairytale fantastical creatures :-)

very strange things are in the sea, allot mankind has yet to discover like this one. fun work..

perpetualrevision 3:52PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

I suspect this one may only be in the sea in Fairyland, but there are probably stranger things down there we've yet to discover! Thanks for the comment :-)

Hi kitty, kitty. The whiskers remind me a catfish. Great looking character very cute and the blue background scene is fantastic! Excellent lighting and god rays!

perpetualrevision 3:52PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

The fish does have a little essence of catfish about it! Thanks for the comment! I can't take credit for the background, though, as that's by Sveva :-)


CoolDimension 12:10AM | Fri, 03 June 2022

You did a great job! Beautiful work! Love all the little fish swimming, too!

perpetualrevision 3:53PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks for the comment! I love those little swimming goldfish too, but I can't take credit for them as they were in Sveva's background. I don't know how she did it!

Love like one of those super cute and deadly sea creatures. Excellent work. Great lighting

perpetualrevision 3:54PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks for the comment! I'd hate to think this fairy fish only looks friendly but could sting you with those whisker tendril thingies, but maybe it only does that if you insult its friends!


gerberc 8:00AM | Fri, 03 June 2022

Beautiful composition and image, very imaginative!

perpetualrevision 3:55PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks so much for the comment! The credit for imaginative really goes to Ryverthorn for thinking up such an interesting fairy fish figure! I love these kinds of fantastical creature figures :-)


romangirl 9:38AM | Fri, 03 June 2022

So cute! Not poisonous, I hope!

perpetualrevision 3:55PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks for the comment! I sure hope not, but we might want to swim a few feet away just in case :-)


MeInOhio 10:47AM | Fri, 03 June 2022

Very nice! Love the colors! Cool looking fish!

perpetualrevision 3:56PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks for the comment! It is a cool looking fish, isn't it? I only got it recently, after seeing how someone else used it and thinking, "what a cool looking fish"!


madame 1:22PM | Fri, 03 June 2022

What a cute little creature, beautiful atmosphere and colors... very creative work !!

perpetualrevision 3:56PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks so much for the comment! I love mystical little creatures like this, and Sveva's background really helps to show it off :-)


mazzam 4:04PM | Fri, 03 June 2022

Lovely character and background - lighting, too.

perpetualrevision 3:57PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks for the comment, mazzam! I think the light I used in front of the fish probably should've had a tad more blue in it, like the rest of the water, but overall I'm pleased with how the lighting came out!


donnena 4:26PM | Fri, 03 June 2022

what a wonderful, whimsical render!!

perpetualrevision 3:58PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thank you! That's my favorite kind to do, when I can pull it off :-)


Radar_rad-dude 5:19PM | Fri, 03 June 2022

Such a darling little character! Most delightful viewing pleasure! Excellent results on this fine creation!

perpetualrevision 3:58PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks for the comment! I thought it was darling too and deserved a closeup :-)


A_Sunbeam 12:03AM | Sat, 04 June 2022

Excellent image !


Flint_Hawk 11:09AM | Sat, 04 June 2022

This darling little creature has really come to life in your creation! I really like what you have done with its wings! Everything just works perfectly together!

perpetualrevision 4:00PM | Sun, 05 June 2022

Thanks so much for the comment, Flint_Hawk! It's a pretty old figure, but with some tweaks to the materials it looks pretty good in a large render! I wanted the wings to look a bit more membranous, but they're two-sided, and that makes it harder to achieve that effect. Still, I like how it turned out, and I esp. like that the fish looks so friendly :-)


jmattatall 6:29PM | Sat, 04 June 2022

Very cute!


UteBigSmile 11:55AM | Sun, 05 June 2022

It's a brilliant cute scene, just love it a lot!


artdreamer 3:30AM | Mon, 06 June 2022

Very nicely conceived and made, full of fantasy. I also think the colors are beautiful.

perpetualrevision 11:56AM | Mon, 06 June 2022

Thanks so much! I do love the colors of underwater scenes :-)


Aidolatrie 6:00AM | Wed, 08 June 2022

Nice work on the pose and facial expression of this rather cute looking creature.


Y-Phil 6:06AM | Wed, 08 June 2022

Gorgeous picture ❤ And just in case you'd like to get inspired, and only if you weren't aware of it: Caisson created in 2020 a thread dedicated to the PrincipledBSDF node, and one of his examples is devoted to translucency: https://www.renderosity.com/forums/comments/4405027/permalink I've got inspired by this for translucent clothes, for example.

perpetualrevision 7:19PM | Fri, 10 June 2022

Thanks for the comment! And thanks for the link. I don't use Superfly (for reasons of personal preference as well as hardware), but if I ever do try it, I'm pretty sure it'll be better at translucency than Firefly!


MollyFootman 4:09PM | Thu, 09 June 2022

Another underwater picture that I really like; you're really on a roll here with teh Mollz, Amy! =)

I like the creature enough that I had a look at DAZ and found it on sale. It will soon live in my library here and who knows, maybe it'll show up in one of my stories as I continue to experiment with fantasy creatures and themes.

Thanks for sharing, I always enjoy viewing!


perpetualrevision 7:20PM | Fri, 10 June 2022

Thanks so much, Molly! That's certainly how I've ended up with a fair number of things: after seeing and admiring them in other people's renders! I'm particularly fond of unusual fantasy creatures, and the fairy fish definitely counts as that! Some people use it as a flying fish (out of water), so you've got options!


daggerwilldo 7:07PM | Fri, 10 June 2022

Adorable little critter. So very fun and enjoyable to view.


misumu 2:37PM | Sun, 12 June 2022

That is the most enchanting creature I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing.!

perpetualrevision 3:45PM | Sun, 12 June 2022

Aw, thanks so much for the comment! I love fantastical creatures like this, and I enjoyed making it look as enchanting as I could figure out how to, with the lighting and various tweaks to the materials!


morganahope 9:01AM | Wed, 06 July 2022

this is fantastic !! I really love this !!!

perpetualrevision 12:57PM | Wed, 06 July 2022
